When people are not responsible for their own lives and happiness it can hurt those that love them by putting a burden on them – a burden that is not theirs.
We cannot give others happiness, security, stability, health, etc. – they have to find it in themselves. When we try to give them these things it can stunt them and create a co-dependent situation where that person relies on us for everything. It doesn’t do any good for either party and usually results in a toxic relationship.
It’s not to say to never help anyone, but if it’s a situation where the person never helps themselves, it may be best to let them figure it out on their own. Even letting a person hit rock bottom, because that is when they’ll find the strength to do it on their own because they won’t want to ever feel that way again.

The pandemic brought a lot of awareness to me about climate change, food shortages, how quickly our hospitals could colapse and more. This has sent me on a mission of becoming self-sustainable, empowered and working to help heal the earth. That is what the focus of this blog has become. The main way I'm working at this is through building a food forest and documenting as much as possible in hopes to inspire others. The more of us that do this, the more it will help heal the earth. When we buy produce from the grocery store, it was grown through monoculture, and that leads to use of chemicals that goes onto our food and into our planet, destroying soil. If we grow our own through permaculture (a food forest), we give the soil health. We also give ourselves health by growing organic foods and herbs that contribute to our health. There's a lot more to this, but this touches the surface. I'm only one year into this but my food forest is growing. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
